There's already a poll on this, I believe.
If I went back in time and murdered my grandmother, therefor preventing my existence, then who killed my grandmother?

In what capacity?

I believe that there is too much government intrusion on our individual rights and our social liberties but not enough government intervention in our economic sphere.

Government doesn't exist. Some people have the illusion that they have the right to initiate violence, however. And in that capacity, I would say the less initiation of violence, the better.

Government exists, true application of force does not. Even a deal made at gunpoint is still an agreement. That's the principle that government is founded on- the harm principle.

Both-- too much government acting on behalf of large, multinational corporations and too little government acting on behalf of the people (the human people).
